Mykonos Hotels and Apartments
The island of Mykonos is situated in the centre of the mythical Aegean Sea and is part of the Cyclades islands. The island has developed beyond the hedonistic, bohemian island it once was but is still a great place to head for late night revelry and is still very much a gay-friendly destination. Mykonos enjoys over 300 days of sunshine each year and is hugely popular during the summer months as temperatures average just below 30°C.
Beautiful beaches and hidden coves
The island boasts a great range of beautiful beaches and nice little hidden coves to stretch out on and relax. Rent a moped and explore or take a local bus. Mykonos continues to attract a young and diverse crowd in the heat of the summer. For a more sedate version of the same island, try either the spring or autumn when the weather is good but the crowds are thinner.
Explore historic Chora
The capital, Mykonos Town (otherwise known as Chora) is only 2.5 miles from the airport, on the west coast of the island. This large town is home to great shops, restaurants, bars and late night clubs. The port and surrounding streets can become a bit over crowded when a cruise ship docks. For culture lovers, the town boasts a great range of museums and historic sites. A visit to Little Venice is also a must.
Paradise Beach Cruise
Enjoy a full day cruise around the southern coast of Mykonos. It’s a great way to explore the coastline and discover the magic of Mykonos. There are several swimming stops along with lunch and a chance to relax on the incredible Paradise Beach and take a cocktail at the infamous Tropicana Beach Bar.
Discover Delos Island
Regular ferries from Mykonos Town make the short trip across the Aegean to the island of Delos. You will get the chance to explore the ancient city complete with the House of Dionysus, the House of Cleopatra and the Temple of Apollo.
Little Venice Quarter
This historic and picturesque corner of the old port in Mykonos Town is on every visitors must see list. Originally home to local sailors the houses are built precariously over the water. In more recent time the houses were colonised by both local and visiting artists and the area still retains this bohemian vibe. Lots of galleries, cafes, bars and places to eat.
Stroll the length of the main street running through Mykonos Town from the old port. The narrow street is lined with local artisan traders, souvenir stalls and places to get a drink or meal.

Mixed feelings but loved in the end....
Lyndy, West lancs
I arrived in mykonos after staying at santorini and Paros. Our first impressions were that it was beautiful but it was sooooo windy. Then people say it's the windy Isle! We didn't know but even this wind was extreme! It was difficult to sit on balcony and the beach was a definite no no! The town itself is lovely with the typical cyclades winding streets and windmills. Beautiful. However it is also so expensive. Whilst u get this in most towns there is normally some cheap places somewhere if u look hard enough. There isn't in mykonos. The only cheap option to eat was gyros which were fab! Drinks were also expensive but could still get wine for 5 euros. We had 2 nights there and the 2nd one we had z meal and drinks out. This is when mykonos won my heart. The nightlife is fab. The bars were great and I wished we were staying longer with lots more money to spend. But as it was our very last of our holiday we were a bit skint by this point. So if going to mykonos go early in holiday or make sure u have lots of money as mykonos cannot be enjoyed on a budget which is a shame but worth the trip regardless.
The best thing about my stay was ...
The nightlife and town.
